UChicago Biosciences Alum finds that birds are shrinking in size due to climate change

Alumni Benjamin Winger (PhD, Evolutionary Biology, 2015), now an assistant professor at the University of Michigan, and assistant curator at the Museum of Zoology, co-authored a study that found that increasing climate temperatures could be affecting the size of birds. Winger stated, "Warming temperatures seem to be having a pretty consistent and almost universal effect on a large number of different species, regardless of other aspects of their biology."
